Vergara hot for ‘Heat’

Thesp joins Statham in pic

Sofia Vergara is looking to turn up the temperature with Jason Statham as the “Modern Family” star is in talks for the female lead in “Heat.”

Simon West helms. William Goldman pens the script.

Pic is a remake of the 1986 Burt Reynolds pic about a recovering gambling addict who finds work providing protection to his friends.

Statham and Steve Chasman will produce through Chasman’s SJ Pictures. Sierra/Affinity is handling international sales, which commenced earlier this year during the Berlin Film Festival.

Though she has made a name for herself with comedic chops, Vergara looks to be trying to flex her muscles in her next couple of projects. Besides “Heat,” she is also in the action pic “Machete Kills” starring Danny Trejo. She is repped by CAA, Latin World Entertainment and Untitled Entertainment.
